GCXI Charity Auction

January 11, 2019 Off By Lloyd Metcalf

Greetings Seekers!

Gary Con is less than 2 months away!  We are very excited for our eleventh year celebrating the life and works of Gary Gygax.  As you read through the events and select what great games and interesting panels you will go to, please don’t forget about the Gary Con Charity Auction. The auction is a core part of Gary Con and it will be Saturday from 3-6pm in the Lobby area this year.  Last year we donated $15,000 to charity thanks to all of you! Our amazing Guests and generous attendees donate spectacular items and often one of kind treasures from their personal collections to raise money for charity.  This year proceeds will be going to Extra Life and The Wounded Warrior Project.

 

We never know what people will donate but one of the things we know that will be auctioned this year will be a signed Gary Con XI poster featuring this amazing artwork, The Pirate Queen, by Charles Urbach.  This piece is  inspired by Mary Gygax, who was dubbed the Pirate Queen by none other than famous science fiction author Fritz Leiber when he first met in 1978 when Gary met with him to ask him to be Guest of Honor at GenCon.  Please consider bringing in one of the treasures from your horde to donate to the auction.  Just bring them to Con HQs before noon on Saturday.  Thank you again for your generous support to Gary Con and our charitable causes!”
